The University of Kentucky has produced a respectable amount of talent to the NFL. Let’s check on them and see how they are doing.
The first Cat to play in week 15 was Za’Darius Smith who plays for the Green Bay Packers, who played against the Carolina Panthers. Smith had three tackles, a sack, and a tackle for loss. The Packers did go on and win 24-16 in a great game. The Packers are now 11-3 and in the front seat for the first seed in the NFC.
The next Cat to play was Lonnie Johnson Jr who plays for the Houston Texans, who played against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Johnson had nine tackles and half a tackle for loss. The Texans did end up losing the game 27-20. The Texans are now 4-10 and are now playing improve themselves as a team.
The next Cat to play was Lynn Bowden Jr who plays for the Miami Dolphins, who played the against the New England Patriots on Sunday. Bowden had six receptions for thirty-seven yards and one rush for nine yards. He helped the Dolphins win 22-12 over the Patriots. That win for the Dolphins will eliminate the Patriots from playoff contention. The Dolphins must win out to get into the playoffs.
The next Cat to play was Danny Trevathan who plays for the Chicago Bears, who played against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Trevathan had eleven tackles, and a pass deflection. He helped the Bears overcome a bad part of the season and win 33-27. The Bears are 7-7 and are out of the playoff contention.
and Avery Williamson, who plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who played against the Cincinnati Bengals. Snell had eighteen carries for eighty-four yards and one touchdown. Williamson had seven tackles. The Steelers would end up losing an unexpected loss to the Bengals. The Steelers are now 11-3. They have clinched a playoff spot, but are on a three-game losing streak. They are third in the AFC behind the Chiefs and the Bills.
The inactive Cats this week were Josh Allen, Randall Cobb, Bud Dupree, Mike Edwards, and Corey Peters. I would suppose these guys did not play because of injury.
